"Eight teachers including our Principal from our small, PK-Grade 8 religious school in northwestern Wisconsin took a "Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support" course through SCT during spring/summer of 2013. As a result of the course, we learned much about PBIS and now we are continuing to develop and plan to implement a PBIS system. The instructor, Tammy Berg, worked with us along the way, and was extremely flexible in allowing us to work on many of the course projects as a team. Thank you Tammy! Looking forward to more professional development coursework with you in the future!"

The Driving Force: How to Make Decisions
with Different Kinds of Student Assessment Data

Print Based Course Printed Course


Assessment is key to creating a more student-centered classroom and can be a powerful force for knowing our students and creating a classroom that can meet their needs. This course complements recent research on data and other books about data by focusing on developing a clearer understanding of exactly what test scores and other data about student learning are and what they mean. Moreover, this course will help you become a better "reader" of data, one who can reason with assessment results to arrive at defensible, effective decisions. The projected outcome of this course is to provide classroom teachers with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies related to student assessment data including a path to a better understanding of data, more accurate interpretation of assessment results, and most importantly a more effective use of data to improve teaching and learning.
